Magees reach quarterfinals at the European Games

Sam and Chloe Magee have advanced to the quarterfinals and set up a medal opportunity at the 2019 European Games in Minsk...

Sam and Chloe beat Aliaksei Konakh and Krestina Silich of Belarus 21-9 21-11 in final group stage match to progress into the Quarterfinals of the European Games at Minsk. Their first win against Evgenii Dremin and Evgenia Dimova of Russia proved to be crucial as it turned out to be one of the tightest groups in the competition. The Irish pair displayed a dominating performance over Konakh/Silich to secure their place in the last 8. Their medal match tomorrow will be against Robin Tabeling and Selena Piek of the Netherlands at approximately 9:00 am Irish time. 

Unfortunately, Nhat Nguyen's journey at the European Games came to a close, losing to a more experienced Toby Penty from England 21-12 21-11. Nguyen showed great promise reaching the last 16 in his first ever European Games here at Minsk.
